Artificial intelligence is reshaping the Internet (and our life) in unprecedented ways. For us in the education, AI ripples are felt throughout the field and while some educators are still viewing it with skepticism, I believe this is the AI era par excellence!
Our students are already leveraging the power of generative AI in their learning (e.g, ChatGPT) and whether you like it or not, we have no choice but to embrace the educational potential of this technology and learn about how to effectively it integrate in our instructional practice.
As an educator and EdTech researcher, I have been closely following AI over the last few months with a special focus on exploring the immense possibilities it offers in terms of creating meaningful learning experiences.
In this regard, I reviewed a wide variety of AI tools that I believe can revolutionize the way we create and deliver educational content. These include:
In this article, I want to touch on the use of AI in creating effective and engaging presentations. More specifically, I will introduce you to some of the best AI presentation makers that will help you create beautiful and professional presentations in just a few clicks.
PowerPoint is among the best presentation makers out there. It has been around for many years and for several of us, their first presentation was created through it. Since the introduction of AI into the digital scene, PowerPoint has its own share of this technology and there are now several AI features that you can use to power up your presentation skills on PowerPoint.
I recently watched this video from Kevin Statvert in which he discussed the different ways to enhance your PowerPoint skills using AI and thought it is worth adding to this list. Kevin talked about a number of integrated AI features to use on your PowerPoint including an AI powered designer, Cameo and live video, presentation coach, subtitles, and more. Check out the entire video tutorial to learn more about how to leverage the power of artificial intelligence in your PowerPoint presentations.
